Despite the emphatic scoreline, Mendip were made to work hard for their third win in this South West Women’s League clash.

Mendip scored first from a cross into the box which was smashed home by Steph Goddard from close range. Cheltenham equalised with a free kick and took the lead with a well struck volley from the edge of the box.

The half time scoreline did not reflect the game and Mendip had to dig deep to come back with goals from Tash Crew, Sam Crew, Ellie Orritt and a first of the season for Abbie Pring.

The PD and CL Building Services girl of the game was shared between Steph Goddard and Laura Jones, who had her first full game for Mendip.

Next week, Mendip travel to Swindon Town’s development team.

Team Mendip Under-13 Black Sox returned from Wedmore with a fine 4-1 victory.

After chances from both sides, Willow Hull found the back of the net to open the scoring, but had to be substituted shortly afterwards due to injury. Wedmore were denied an equaliser by a fantastic save from keeper Ellie-Mae Brennan.

Mendip immediately responded with Tegan Roberts making it 2-0, but Wedmore continued to pile on the pressure, with Brennan making another fantastic save.

The second half saw an early goal from Roberts, but the home team were rewarded with a goal to make it 1-3.

Mendip defenders Jess Selwyn, Mollie Barnes, Evie Hamilton-White and Robins remained solid. Midfielders Charlotte Morris, Chloe Morris and Amelie Ford showed good skill, while Kelly Jones and Lily Potter were constantly denied goals from a solid Wedmore defence.

Jones was eventually rewarded with a last minute goal to make it 4-1 at the final whistle.

Dalesway Mobility girl of the match went to Amelie Ford with a belated girl of the match medal going to Mollie Barnes for their previous match.
